The neighbors behind our rental property have 4 large dead trees. Recently one of them fell into our yard and destroyed our fence. They are taking no responsibility for our fence that needs to be replaced. Our concern is not so much for our fence but for the safety of our tenants. This tree fell within a few feet of the patio area where my tenants spend a lot of time. The other 3 dead trees (same age as the one that fell) are much larger and would definitely destroy the patio - and potentially hurt or kill people. We have spoken to the owner - he says that they will not fall for another year! How could someone know that especially since we live in Florida - any storm or hurricane would create havoc. How can we proceed to have him do the right thing before someone gets seriously hurt.
